“Going to the mountains is like therapy for me. I think that everyone can find balance when surrounded by wild nature while also protecting this environment so that future generations can enjoy it too”.

About Me.

Mountaineer, climber and UIAGM Mountain Guide  with a predilection for exploration and big walls in far lands.

I live my year between Chamonix and the Dolomites, where between giant glaciers and beautiful rock spires I found the right balance in my personal activity and work as a Guide.

In the recent years I have focused myself in expeditions and climbs in alpine and big wall style.

From the most iconic walls of the Alps, the Yosemite Valley and Patagonia to the wild mountains of the Himalayas and Alaska where I was lucky enough to leave my signature opening some new routes, some on unclimbed peaks.

Despite all this wandering, climbing in the Dolomites or in the Mont Blanc massif always gives me strong emotions and that is why I chose these two areas for my adventures behind home, to live with friends and people who choose me as Mountain Guide and climbing partner.
